Not sure what you mean by "get burnt" - if you mean the thing overheats and fails, if you can do that to a Compac it's your own fault and if it's not your own fault I'll fix it for free as long as I still have parts around.
He must be assuming chinese crummy ones that are the avalons in the standard usb flash drive plastic shroud, but I haven't had an issue with compacs and no fan on top of it.

Is it really worth the amount? I heard that most USB miners get burnt in 3 to 6 months and you will not be even able to recover the  money you spent to buy it. Not a fan of buying any miners. But if you're doing it just for fun, go ahead.

my sidehack compact sticks run fine after a year.

I owned almost every stick ever made.  my death rate on 1000+ sticks  was  under 10 sticks.

most sticks are burnt up by miners that simply don't know what they are doing.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

I bet these are what he is talking about: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Cheapest-USB-ASIC-MINER-Usb-Bitcoin-Miner-300MH-S-28nm-USB-BTC-MINER/1512416_32230387275.html

Clone mining sticks, no heat sinks and in standard flash drive cases, these flooded the market a while ago and now are impossible to find.

Those things ran quite well, I bought those as one of my first miners besides my old Block Erupter. Pretty sure they ran the same chip the Block Erupter ran, with Icarus as well. Only issue was that they got exceptionally hot. Were actually fun miners to use, it's sad that they've been gone. Last few sold in early 2016 iirc. Most of mine only ran to 300mh/s, the ones they had were probably scrapped from the old block erupter units, then soldered onto boards or something of the like.

Well the block erupters had that large metal heatsink on them, this looks just like a standard usb surrounding. I don't think it could handle the temps well with that.
